Our Rapeseed Oil Farming Story
Producing oil from rapeseed has grown dramatically in popularity over the last few years, topping the leader board as the healthier choice for cooking. It's without a doubt that Fussels provide the best quality rapeseed oil on the market, supported by our loyal customers and their plethora of 5 star reviews of our products. The great news is you can buy our rapeseed oil in the Fussels shop and other retailers across the country, but you can also buy our golden rapeseed oil and have it delivered right to your door, thanks to our online store.
Our family have been farming in Somerset for generations and set up the Fussels Fine Food Company in 2005, selling our quality rapeseed oil as a West Country alternative to imported olive oils and now becoming a household name. Being the producers of rapeseed oil, Tim & Andy oversee every aspect of the rapeseed oil farming production, from sowing to cold pressing and bottling. And, because they store the seed, not the oil, what they bottle and sell as Fussels cold pressed extra virgin oil is always wonderfully fresh from plant to plate.
A delightfully buttery, nutty flavour is used every day of the week in the many kitchens across the country. It has 10x the essential fatty acid Omega 3 versus olive oil, a terrific balance of Omegas 3 and 6, half the saturated fat of olive oil. Fussels quality rapeseed oil is high in monounsaturated fats and is an excellent source of vitamin E. It cooks to a higher temperature than olive oil, making it a versatile oil choice great for roasting, frying, baking, dressing and drizzling.
Fussels rapeseed oil is also the main staple ingredient in our other product ranges of mayonnaise, dressings, flavoured oils, vinaigrettes, and gift boxes.
